Rep. Pat Fallon (R-TX), like nearly every GOP member in the House of Representatives, doesn’t actually take the job he was elected to do seriously because he’s far too busy trying to make excuses for failed ex-president Donald Trump and slag President Joe Biden.
Fallon was a guest on Fox today, and host Arthel Neville referenced an FBI document that Republicans claim proves Biden had illegal dealings with foreign governments while he was vice president.
“You’re going to finally get to see this,” Neville noted. “You’ve done a lot of work to make sure this happens.”
“Conversely, if it disapproves, disproves, or dispels suspicions and allegations, will that exonerate then Vice President Biden?”
Fallon: “Oh, no, not at all, because it’s just once. It’s just one document.”
“And Joe Biden could have ensured that this investigation ended years ago if he’s done nothing wrong by simply opening up his records and sharing them. His bank records, Hunter Biden’s bank records.”
That led Neville to ask Fallon if he believed the FBI could be counted on to investigate Trump as fairly as Biden.
“Of course, you hope so,” Fallon responded. “But you also don’t want to see a two-tiered justice system where one party is protected, and the other one is exposed and thrown under the bus, if you will.”
Neville accused Fallon of “squirming” instead of answering her questions directly.
“So Congressman, I mean, you’re doing a really good job of sort of squirming around my questions,” she said. “What I see you setting up, quite frankly, is that if this document doesn’t give you the evidence that you’re looking for, then you’re going to keep digging. Even if it does, you’re going to keep digging.
“So it seems like no matter what is in this document, no matter what the FBI does or doesn’t do, they’re political,” she added. “So it just is going to have this malaise of just confusion that will keep going and going and going. And I think that the American public would like to get some firm answers and not to have this process.”
What a large number of the American public would really like is if Fallon and his GOP colleagues actually did their damn jobs instead of trying to make excuses for Donald Trump and his crime family.
